, if there's any special flavor here, virginia depends on defense to a greater degree in than any other state except for alaska. we are second in per-capita defense expenditures. there's a special flavor on federal spending, because governmental employment is so important, not just in northern virginia, which borders on d.c., but also in hampton roads, the hampton roads area off virginia beach and the surrounding localities. host: what are the demographics of the state of virginia? guest: as with most larger population states, there are many states in one. you have northern virginia, which is about a third of the state's population, now produces 30% of the vote, if not more. that has a low-debate. that particular population is national and international in scope. it is the highest income region. it has the people with the highest educational levels in the state on average. it tends to be the most democratic region. if you go down to and tidewater, roads, that is a heavy defense industry area. it is both white-collar and blue-collar, also has a large african-american population. and it also ha
with the increase taxes that we would see, do you reversed. as well as the deep defense cuts, which is something that would really impact the area dramatically. george mason and stephen fuller, one of the preeminent economists in our area said the defense cuts could cause a recession in virginia and almost double the unemployment numbers. bridget has been several -- rigid has been scary -- very successful in having a low unemployment rate. jobs is the number one priority. that is why we are very courageous that the numbers of supporters in for mitt romney this year. >> does your canada have to win the county to win virginia? guest: i don't know we have to, i expect we will. it was only a narrow margin that president obama won loudoun, the last time and it really was an aberration. virginia republicans have been winning loudoun county in 2009 when governor bob mcdonnell won this area, and then in 2010, of course our congressman frank wolfe, he is extremely popularhe is of course on the ticket this year. he always wins resoundingly. in 2011, we swept all of the state and local seats here in this y

now look to the future and look at a new defense strategy as we try to work through what the roles of the different services are and the defense strategy, i also remind everyone that we are also going to be downsizing during this time. the army, who at the beginning of calendar year 2012 was 570,000, will go down to 490,000 in the active component by the end of 2017. we have significant deployed commitments. we are downsizing our army, and we are now looking to the future. one of the main thing is we have to do is ensure we have the right mix. i always talk about my three rio stats that the secretary of army and i pay a lot of attention to. end strength, modernization, and readiness. because in general terms those are the drivers of our budget. we have to keep those in balance. we want to learn from the lessons of future -- past draw downs. some of the lessons is you can't get out of balance. because if you get out of balance you start to have an unready army. which leads to a hobbled army. we talk about task force smith and its impact and unpreparedness as was asked to go into kor

's the economy or the benghazi. where we had this strange story over the weekend that the secretary of defense apparently refuse to obey the president's order, if the president is telling the truth and he instructed his assistants to get aid to benghazi, we're now being told that the secretary of defense canceled that. i think these type of things drag down the president. you notice that he's cancelling his trips over the hurricane. he didn't cancel his trips over benghazi and you have to wonder, between benghazi, the price of gasoline and unemployment, just how much the burden the president is going to carry into this last week. >> he does have a burden. as you point, with a lot of those stories coming out. at the same time, he's built up a lead in some of these battleground states. according to a wealth polls that we have seen across the country. it raised the prospect of governor romney winning the popular vote. losing the electoral college. republicans won't exceaccept th is he right? >> i don't know what he means by we won't accept it. we're a nation of law, we'll obey the law. i think it
have some defense contractors as well. security is always a big issue. for example, my parents were both world war ii vetrans. you find a lot of veterans in new hampshire. the important thing is to look at the record in comparison to record. president obama has a great record on national security and taking down the leadership of al qaeda, our enemies. people came into our country and killed 2000 of our citizens. at the same time, look at mitt romney in what he is proposing is trillions of dollars in defense spending that the military is not even asking for. he is looking at the old way of conducting military affairs. he is still talking about the ways the navy operated in 1917, as opposed to the security threats that face us today in the country in 2012, and what is the most effective way of protecting our people and our country in 2012. look at the rhetoric, as opposed to the record. if you look of the record, you will support president obama. host: kathy sullivan with the democratic national committee, thank you for your time. we will continue our conversation about the state of
himself into a hole and then feeling nervous about it. >> award in defense of john sununu. he basically had a formulation that colin powell should be proud of supporting barack obama because they belong to the same race, which means that obviously, john sununu who is white is proud to be supporting mitt romney. john sununu is -- believe me, i have known him for a long time -- he is writing a book called "dale carnegie was wrong." [laughter] and it will not be a bestseller. >> everybody is crazy uncles in the attic, and romney as john sununu, and he also has donald trump, who is offering $5 million if the president would just releases college records. sununu in thekeep at. >> colby is right, they put sununu out there regularly. whenever you say about mitt romney's campaign, is a very disciplined campaign, and they are not putting out spokespersons who are saying what they don't want spoken. >> the president had a good line about donald trump on at jay leno's show. >> the president said, "it all goes back to when we were growing up together in kenya and we were playing soccer and he was n

has a memo suggest hag romney surge put pennsylvania in play and the president is on defense saying the expansion of the electoral map demonstrates that governor romney's momentum jumped containment from the usual target states and spread to deeper blue states that chicago never anticipated defending. paul ryan was in his home state of wisconsin to encourage relief efforts of campaign victory offices. the native son popularity helped him surge in 2.3 points of the president in real clear politics average of recent wisconsin polls. thursday he will visit virginia where the top ally is dealing with the clean-up. >> we are issuing a letter today to all the voting registrar office around the state. asking them to stay open for up to eight additional hours to make up for the time. that a citizen may not have had to vote absentee. over the last two days. >> i don't think the damage has been massive. not in virginia it appears. especially northern virginia. not necessarily in new hampshire. so, we're not looking at swing states, sustaining the damage. >> devastation hasn't completely disru
of defense. we talk with all the governors in the affected states as well as an awful lot of the mayors. i can tell you confidently that the federal government, state government, local government, they are doing everything in their power to coordinate relief as rapidly as we can do so many people who have been devastated by this storm. [applause] as tragic as it is, my mom, god rest her soul, she said, joe, out of something bad, something good will look --, if you look hard enough. my state of delaware was hit. it is a low-lying state. the hurricane went on shore about 30 miles from rehoboth to, in new jersey. my state, where my in-laws used to live, where my brothers and sisters live, they were hit pretty badly. i have a sister in law and family who live in ocean city, new jersey. you saw how badly they were hit. it is kind of amazing -- it is kind of amazing. a call yesterday with all the governors and mayors, it warmed my heart. you had the governor of delaware, the governor of connecticut, the governor of pennsylvania, democrats and republicans, and they were hurt. the governor of mary
and defenses are our most important functions in washington need to say that not every dollar hash wisely spent or is sacred, and then also the same with liberals. liberals need to stay that not every dollar spent in domestic welfare has been well spent and both sides should come together in both areas of the government and budget need to be reduced. >> senator, can you talk a little brit about the so-called fiscal cliff that is looming tend of december? can you talk a little bit about what you think should happen? we have tax cuts that are about to expire, many of them, you know, and we also have, like you were just talking about, the trillion dollar sequestration cuts that will be across the board in both domestic and military spending, hall of these things are happening by the end of the year. what do you think congress should do, do you feel like they should leave everything out of this so we can start reducing our deficit, or do you have any ideas that congress should put in place that you will put forward when you guys go back in next week, two weeks from now? >> yeah. i think the best wa

the federal government has a law in place called the defensive marriage act which basically means that same sex marriage cls ducted in the six states and the district of columbia that have marriage, for example, let's say that a couple gets married in massachusetts and god forbid one of those partner dies. the federal government has a law in place that does not recognize that legal marriage. so for the purposes of things like social security survivor benefits or internment in federal cemeteries or a whole number of laws having to do with tament tax treatment and things like that. that couple in the eyes of the federal government is not recognized as having been legally married. as you can appreciate in the case of death or some kind of family turmoil, that often has led to the emotional and financial devastation to that family. so for federal law purposes at least, the word marriage and the institution of marriage is incredibly important. but really it goes much deeper than that. it's really wanting to be treated as equal citizens under the law. host: our next call comes from illinois. sue,
, the romney campaign is accusing the president of being on the defensive and resorting to attacks and insults. >> and david axelrod is joining us now from chicago. he's the senior adviser to president obama and his re-election campaign. thanks for coming in. a headline, obama scharpens criticism, romney expresses optimism. i'll play you a clip of what romney's been saying. >> he is now resorted to talking about saving characters on sesame street and word games and of course he continues to launch these misdirected attacks at me and he knows they're not accurate and they're not making much progress for him so his campaign gets smaller and smaller focused on smaller and smaller thing. >> they're saying that the president is diminishing the office of the presidency which is pretty strong words. >> well, those are strong words. they don't mean a whole heck of a lot because they don't reflect what's going on out there. i haven't seen governor romney on the trail with us, and he reallily doesn't know perhaps what the president is saying and doing or perhaps he does and it concerns him. the presiden
frequency. in our article, quoted a guy from the environmental defense fund who knows a lot about this and eric made the analogy to baseball saying, in connection with the disgraced slugger barry bonds, he said, you could not attribute bonds' use of steroids to only one home run he hit, but only a fool would think that steroids had nothing to do with the amount of home runs he hit and how far he hit. i think that is analogy that is good -- i think it is an analogy that is good to think about. there are many factors that go into extreme weather, but overall, the fact the oceans are higher, the wer is warmer, there was more moisture in the atmosphere, that the arctic ice is melting -- those are facts. it is time to accept them. >> in fact, when you talk about the arctic ice melting, you talk about what scientists say may be a direct link between that and what you are experiencing in new york and people are expressing along the east coast now. but that is right. what you're talking about now is something specific to sandy. one of the interesting and very relevant things about this pa
sure we fully fund the military to make sure we are going to always have the greatest military defense in the world. >> moderator: okay, thank you. mr. morning? morning: well, i'm clearly the peace through strength campaign. i believe that if you look up something like the pet row dollar and tie the fact that our monetary scheme is tied to oil, you'll see a good part of our foreign policy not just in the middle east, but elsewhere is tie today all the of the worst decisions we've made. and i'm opposed to just about anything arrive seen coming out of washington, d.c. for the last 70 years or so. we've not had a year's peace, we've not had a declared war since world war ii. all of that's immoral, and it's not working. i would say that what we ought to be doing is peace, commerce, healthy skepticism with all nations and entangling alliances with none. >> moderator: thank you. mr. donnelly? one minute. donnelly: well, first and foremost, osama bin laden is dead. in regards to iran, they cannot get a nuclear weapon. it is, it is a nonnegotiable point. what you've seen so far with the sancti
. secretary of defense saying he denied requests for help over that seven hours. >> we'll get to that later. >> but it's a trust issue. >> on the economy, how does it tip the scales, david brooks? >> i think it's been the worst campaign i have ever covered. they are both ending where they started. obama doing a negative campaign. he's got an ad out about romney and the flip-flop and what we have heard. it's almost pure negativity. romney is trying to appeal to moderates and women, which is a bipartisan ad saying i don't care if it's a republican or democrat idea, i'm for that. you know, he has -- it's not who he is or what his policies are. i regard it as a campaign that's not addressed these issues. they are finishing as badly as they started. >> i disagree, david. i think the trust issue links with the economic issue. it's a product. like if you are selling the car, you want air-conditioning, i'll give you that. you want rich, remember all that, i'll give you that. romney is saying you want that, i'll give you that. you want sen tryst, i'll give you that. the auto rescue is a good example
that to them before. but at the same time he said he is running out of supplies he said the defense and batteries and such the confederates have built around fort sumter were so strong that it would take a massive force to relieve him successfully, a force that was far beyond the ability of the united states army and navy to provide at that time. so anderson really said look, i can't maintain myself fear, but there's no way you can, help me. anderson fully expected he would be told to withdraw. now, when you come down to the final crisis when lincoln decides what he's going to do is to send an expedition that will provide supplies to major anderson, though he did not send troops or munitions, when the confederate commander in charleston sent his delegation out to anderson to kill anderson that you've got to surrender, or we will reduce you. anderson at the point told them, look, i've got to leave in two days, by the 15th of april, so that's a factor he said if you come at me i will fight back. ball regard census information to my comment because he relies this is a question of peace
